Dr. Bukola Saraki, former Senate President, has paid for all of the medical bills of sick actor Mr John Okafor, nicknamed Mr Ibu.
Saraki accomplished this through the Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation.

In response to his request, the Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation came to his aid on Friday and paid off all of his medical expenditures.
Disclosing this on Twitter now X platform, the foundation opined: “The Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation is honoured to have extended support to Mr John Okafor also known as Mr. Ibu, a renowned comedic icon who has graced our screens and brought joy and laughter to countless homes over the past four decades.
“When we learned of his recent health challenges and the financial burdens associated with his medical treatment, we felt a deep sense of responsibility to assist in any way we could. We promptly paid off his entire medical expenses as of Wednesday.
“We encourage everyone, who can, to come forward and assist in any capacity, whether it’s through financial contributions, moral support, or prayers. We wish him a swift and complete recovery.”
